The Kashmir Files was released on March 11, and has won hearts and is doing well at the box office. The film is about the exodus of Kashmiri pandits during the Kashmir insurgency in 1990. People have lauded the movie and continue to go to the theatre to watch the movie.
Many celebrities have supported and encouraged everyone to watch it. Many states in India have declared the movie tax-free.
Actor-turned-author Twinkle Khanna recently gave a humorous take to the film in her column for the Times of India. “In a meeting at a producer’s office, I am informed that there is a deluge of fresh movie titles being registered as homage to The Kashmir Files. Since larger cities have already been claimed, now the poor chaps are registering names like Andheri Files, Khar-Danda Files, and even South Bombay Files. I am just wondering if my colleagues can still call themselves filmmakers, or with all this filing, they, like the original nationalist, Manoj Kumar, have all turned into clerks,” she wrote.
The actress also spoke about making a movie named Nail Files. When telling this to her mother Dimple Kapadia, she asked if it’s going to be of a disastrous manicure. Twinkle replied, \”Maybe, but at least it’s better than putting the final nail into the communal coffin.\”
Akshay Kumar also recently praised the film which had released at the same time as his film Bachchan Pandey. He jokingly said, \”Vivek ji ne Kashmir Files bana kar humare desh ki ek bohot bade dardanak sach ko samne rakha hain. Ye film ek aisi bhet bann kar ayi, ye aur baat hain ki meri picture ko bhi duba diya hain.\”
The Kashmir Files is directed by Vivek Agnihotri, and produced by Zee Studios, IAmBuddha Productions and Abhishek Agarwal arts banner.
